Ocasio-Cortez Rips NRA After New Zealand Shootings

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez Dismisses NRA's Fox News Finds Way to Attack AOC After Christchurch Massacre

Four people have been arrested, and one charged with murder, in connection with mass shootings that took place at two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch during mid-day prayer on Friday.

Maybe, with her political stance, Ocasio-Cortez should investigate progressive high-intensity interval workouts.

Ocasio-Cortez later qualified her statement again in order to clarify her words amidst bad-faith interpretations, as NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch attempted to paint the congresswoman as anti-prayer.

"Half of USA adults were unfamiliar with or had no opinion of her in September after her seismic primary win over the summer, but that figure has shrunk to 29% today", Gallup reported.

Before her election to Congress, when many of her nuanced views remained relatively unknown to most Americans, Ocasio-Cortez registered a net favorability rating of just negative 2 percent.

Ocasio-Cortez did not respond well to the news, which is typical of her as she normally reacts to criticisms by playing the victim card, or claiming that they are conspiracy theories, foolish nonsense, or she attacks the source.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) talks with fellow members during a House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing, on March 14, 2019, in Washington.

Gallup further noted that Ocasio-Cortez's favorable rating was "underwater" among the majority of groups and was only viewed as favorable among 56% of Democrats.

Ocasio-Cortez beat a 10-term incumbent to nab the Democratic nomination in her district a year ago and has advocated for progressive policies like a Green New Deal to tackle climate change. "Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) each made big splashes when they were elected earlier in the decade, but even after each of their first 18 or so months in the Senate, most Americans had never heard of them or had no opinion about them", wrote Justin McCarthy, an analyst at Gallup.
